Mujica compared the efforts to undermine the democratically elected government of Nicolas Maduro with the strategy employed in other countries such as Serbia, Ukraine and a number of Arab countries.

Tactics being applied in Venezuela for regime change

The Uruguayan president stated that the tactics described by U.S. academic Gene Sharp are being applied in Venezuela. Sharp’s ideas largely deal with regime change, which Mujica claims were successfully used for the first time in Serbia and subsequently used during the so-called Arab spring and to topple the government in Ukraine last year.

Mujica, who will leave his post on Sunday, made his comments during his radio program. His government’s foreign minister, Luis Almagro, previously has rejected in the domestic affairs of Venezuela, saying that he sees democracy in Venezuela as a “fundamental instrument for stability in the region.”
